Will Smith’s recent India trip was for “spiritual purposes,” as he practiced yoga, and meditation, a month after slapping Chris Rock

Will Smith went to India for spiritual purposes after slap on Chris Rock

Four days ago, Will Smith was spotted in Mumbai, India. He appeared to be in very good spirits, as he took the time to take photos with fans, near his hotel. This was all as the one-month anniversary of Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars, was nearing.

Smith ended up being banned from the Oscars, and other Academy events, for the next 10 years. Smith initially laid down this slap on Rock, after he made a “GI Jane” joke about Jada Pinkett, that night. Smith soon started yelling “Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth!” Smith did end up apologizing to the Academy and Rock, though. That same night, Smith won the Oscar for best actor, after the incident unfolded.

“The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home. I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken. I want to put the focus back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to get back to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film.”

Many wondered why Smith took this trip to India, though. According to sources close to People, this was due to spiritual purposes, and to practice yoga and meditation. Hopefully, this trip is what Smith needed, to clear his month.
